Verdict: The Perfect Television Show Movie

 

Story: South Park: Bigger Longer & Uncut starts with our Colorado friends from South Park Stan, Kyle, Cartman, Kenny and Ike heading to go and see the Terrance & Philip Movie. After seeing the movie that everyone hates the boys have picked up the foul language that gets them into trouble at school. The USA starts worrying about the Canadian comedians trying to get the film banned while the children have to go rehabilitation to stop their searing.

When the boys see the film again it leads to Cartman betting Kenny he can’t set a fart on fire and Oh My God they killed Kenny who ends up in hell. When America arrests Terrance & Philip the Canadian’s fight back leading to a war between the two countries.  Kenny gets to watch the war happen with Satan & his new partner is terror Saddam Hussein, who are using this as a potential plan to take over the world.

South Park: Bigger Longer & Uncut manages to do what a certain other show struggled to achieve by doing an extended story from the show, it makes it feel like it is just another show but gets away with jokes and language than it could have on TV. The story is what you would expect from the team behind the show poking complete fun at everything involved and even using the idea people don’t like the show part of the story. It will just be for the fans of the show who will all say bravo but I can understand why a lot of people don’t like this type of comedy. (8/10)

 

Character Review

 

Stan, Kyle & Cartman: The three surviving friends have to fight to free Terrance & Philip after the Americans plan to execute them for pushing the boundaries and corrupting the children. The boys are what you always expect to see from them fighting between themselves while trying to come up with a smarter answer than the adults. (8/10)

 

Kenny: Kenny dies performing a bet and finds himself in hell. While in hell Kenny learns of Satan & Saddam Hussein’s plan to take over the world after the execution of Terrance & Philip. Kenny has to try and convince Satan not to take over and warn his friends on Earth from beyond the grave. Kenny was always the character that got killed which has stopped happening as often now but still when it does we don’t see him again but this time we do and we finally get to see what he looks like under his orange hoodie. (9/10)

 

Satan & Saddam Hussein: The pair are in hell and see the war above them as the final prediction that will let them raise up to rule the Earth. The pair got poked complete fun at through this film with Satan coming off as a gay friendly character and Saddam being the crazed character we thought he might be. (9/10)

 

Terrance & Philip: The Canadian comedies new film is the final straw that blows the tension between America and Canada who end up going to war while the two have to wait to be executed. This pair sums up the creators of South Park, they do what they want for the people that are entertained by it and if you don’t like it they stick their fingers up to you. (9/10)

 

Support Characters: South Park: Bigger Longer & Uncut brings us our favourite in different location as well as poking fun at the celebrity world which we know they love to do.

 

Director Review: Trey Parker – Trey gives us what we want from a film from his show just entertaining from start to finish. (9/10)

 

Animation: South Park: Bigger Longer & Uncut brings us the animation level we expect to see, it never reaches the levels of Pixar but accepts that it doesn’t want to be perfect. (8/10)

Comedy: South Park: Bigger Longer & Uncut is filled with jokes that just couldn’t be told in any other film. (9/10)

Musical: South Park: Bigger Longer & Uncut has a very clever range of songs used with Blame Canada getting an Oscar nomination. (9/10)

Settings: South Park: Bigger Longer & Uncut keeps most of the settings in and around the usual settings we would see from the show. (9/10)
